If you favor overall sound quality and a wider soundstage for an immersive music experience, the Audio Technica M50x headphones could be a better choice. They're praised for their detailed and balanced sound but are also known for being less portable due to their size and not folding down as much as other headphones. The 7hz Timeless earbuds are compact, making them more suitable for portable use and exercise, but they don't offer active noise cancelling. Both lack wireless capability and additional tech features like app equalization customization, so they are better suited for pure audio experiences rather than tech-heavy convenience. Give Feedback

Headphonesty

Kazi Mahbub Mutakabbir | May 2023
"7Hz picked a bold name for the Timeless and frankly, got very close to justifying their word choice. Most importantly, the Timeless are good to go in stock form, so you don’t have to worry about source-matching and such. I can recommend the 7Hz Timeless to those who do not mind a dash of brightness up top, want a taste of planar in IEM form, and want one of the most resolving pair of earphones in the $150 - $300 price range."

Sound Guys

Jasper Lastoria | October 2022
"Good sound is timeless. It doesn’t matter that a number of years have passed since the ATH-M50x came out because it still works well. Since this wired headset doesn’t rely on batteries or Bluetooth technology, it’s bound to outlast its wireless counterparts. The no-nonsense performance, fit, and comfort of the Audio-Technica ATH-M50x make it worth picking up."
